Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium, Auckland Reviews - Write a Review
I used to love coming here but over the years it seems to have declined a bit. Unfortunately, the sting Ray tank was closed off. However, the tunnel is always good. There are a couple of interactive areas that are really great for the kids. I just think for the price you pay it's not great value for money.
Kelly Tarlton's is great for kids and parents. The tickets are not cheap - that was my only 'put off'. But we managed to get a good discount (free kids ticket) via the Entertainment book. I would recommend getting tickets with a discount as the normal price is $39 for adults, but a family pass is cheaper. With a discounted entry I thought it was well worth it. There is a lot to see including penguins, jellyfish, sharks and many many species of New Zealand fish. My son loved the whole experience and we will definitely be visiting again!
Ventilation is poor in some areas. Felt cramped. Relatively small place, can go through within an hour going at a steady pace. Car parks are very limited, had to wait 10-15 minutes for someone to finish their session and leave the area, I guess it's reasonable considering the size of the venue. Great place for kids, can be educational. The normal price is a bit on the high side for what it offers, get it on discount if you can
Not worth the money. Lots of other things around the area to do. The only worth while thing to see are the penguins. If you can get a good discount then it might be worth your while.
I really like this aquarium/sealife park. OnE of the best close up penguin enclosures I've ever seen. The shark walk is nice too but the conveyor belt was broken when we visited. My only real gripe here is the high cost. Thankfully, if you are reading this in Nov 2017 there is a discount with free entrance for children with every adult ticket, I believe.
